All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
All things being relative, this is Weather Report's straightahead album, where the elaborate production layers of the late-'70s gave way to sparer textures and more unadorned solo improvisation in the jazz tradition, electric instruments and all.

For Erskine, this is is first full studio album and he amply demonstrates his terrific sense of forward drive unique among the other superb drummers in WR annals. ...

For Erskine, this is is first full studio album and he amply demonstrates his terrific sense of forward drive unique among the other superb drummers in WR annals. "Port of Entry" is a tour de force for Jaco, who knocks off several of those unbelievably slippery, pointed runs that have made him a posthumous legend. There is also a tremendously fun retro trip to Duke Ellington's "Rockin' in Rhythm," everybody swinging their heads and hands off.

    best overall but...

    ...if you want IT, you'll need to find the "Tail Spinnin" recording. Although every track on "Night Passage" is excellent, making this a classic recording, none can match the first three tracks, "Man In The Green Shirt, "Lusitanos" and "Between The Thighs", on "Tail Spinnin".
